Pressestimmen

-Sometimes you just need a smart love story that will make anyone, man or woman, laugh out loud.-
--San Francisco Chronicle

-Move over, Sheldon Cooper. There's a new brilliant, socially inept scientist poised to win over a huge audience, and his name is Don Tillman, in The Rosie Project. . . . It's not surprising that debut novelist Graeme Simsion has a background in science--The Rosie Project, already a success in Australia, seems almost precision engineered to keep readers turning pages. But unlike its unexpectedly lovable hero, this rom-com is bursting with warmth, emotional depth, and intentional humor.- (A-)
--Entertainment Weekly

-It's natural to be wary of a novel that's been the target of such gushy praise. Publishers in at least thirty-eight countries have snapped up the rights to The Rosie Project, which has been touted as a 'publishing phenomenon, ' an 'international sensation' and no less than 'the feel-good hit of 2013.' Well, squelch your inner cynic: the hype is justified. Australian Graeme Simsion has written a genuinely funny novel. . . . This is classic rom-com.-
--The Washington Post

-Simsion's attention to detail brings to life Don's wonderful, weird world. Instead of using Don's Asperger's syndrome as a fault, or a lead-in to a tragic turn of events, Simsion creates a heartwarming story of an extraordinary man learning to live in an ordinary world, and to love. As Don would say, this book is 'great fun.'-
--USA Today

-An utterly winning screwball comedy. . . . If you're looking for sparkling entertainment along the lines of Where'd You Go, Bernadette and When Harry Met Sally, The Rosie Project is this season's fix. . . . This charming, warmhearted escapade, which celebrates the havoc--and pleasure--emotions can unleash, offers amusement aplenty. Sharp dialogue, terrific pacing, physical hijinks, slapstick, a couple to root for, and more twists than a pack of Twizzlers--it's no surprise that The Rosie Project is bound for the big screen. But read it first.-
--NPR.org

-Filled with humor and plenty of heart, The Rosie Project is a delightful reminder that all of us, no matter how we're wired, just want to fit in.-
--Chicago Tribune

-Another great favorite: The Rosie Project, a hilarious novel by Graeme Simsion. It's truly one of the funniest and most poignant novels I've read, and when you've finished it, there's an excellent sequel as well.-
--Nicholas Kristof, New York Times Newsletter

-The Rosie Project opens as strongly as any comic novel I've read in a long time. . . . The book roars at high speed to its conclusion. . . . A highfunctioning but emotionally illiterate guy like Don makes a perfect unreliable narrator. . . . Happily, Simsion doesn't give Don an unbelievable emotional makeover. Our man just learns to live by a more complicated algorithm.-
--Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

-One of the year's most promising and original novelists.-
--The Wall Street Journal

-Funny, touching, and hard to put down, The Rosie Project is certain to entertain even as readers delve into deep themes. For a book about a logic-based quest for love, it has a lot of heart. . . . [an] immensely enjoyable novel.-
--Booklist (starred review)

-Read-out-loud laughter begins by page two in Simsion's debut novel about a thirty-nine-year-old genetics professor with Asperger's--but utterly unaware of it--looking to solve his Wife Problem. . . . What follows are his utterly clueless but more often thoroughly charming exploits in exploring his capacity for romance. . . . This novel is perfectly timed.-
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

-Polished debut fiction. . . . Simsion can plot a story, set a scene, write a sentence, finesse a detail. A pity more popular fiction isn't this well written. . . . A sparkling, laugh-out-loud novel.-
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

-[A] bright, whip-snappingly funny romantic comedy. . . . Readers, too, will push eagerly through the narrative, and at the end they'll have one thought: thank goodness there's a sequel.-
--Library Journal

-Don Tillman helps us believe in possibility, makes us proud to be human beings, and the bonus is this: he keeps us laughing like hell.-
--Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook

-The Rosie Project is the best, most honestly told love story I've read in a long time.-
--Kristin Hannah, author of Fly Away and Home Front

-A world so original, in a story so compelling, I defy you not to read through the night. Read this glorious novel now, in the moment, where it lives.-
--Adriana Trigiani, author of The Shoemaker's Wife

-The Rosie Project is an upbeat, quirky, impertinent gem of a read. As the novel makes its logically irrefutable progression, readers will become enchanted by what may well be the world's first rigorously evidence-based romantic comedy.-
--Chris Cleave, author of Little Bee and Gold

-This clever and joyful book charmed me from the first. Professor Tillman is an unlikely romantic hero but a brave, winning soul, and his quest to find a wife goes to show that rationality is no match for love.-
--Maggie Shipstead, author of Seating Arrangements

-Graeme Simsion has created an unforgettable and charming character unique in fiction. Don Tillman is on a quirky, often hilarious, always sincere quest to logically discover what is ultimately illogical--love. Written in a superbly pitch-perfect voice, The Rosie Project had me cheering for Don on every page. I'm madly in love with this book! Trust me, you will be, too.-
--Lisa Genova, author of Still Alice and Left Neglected

-With the demands of children and work, it's rare that I find myself so caught up in a novel that I literally cannot put it down--not for food nor for conversation nor even for sleep. Charming and delightful, I was so enamored of The Rosie Project that I read it in a single, marathon sitting.-
--Ayelet Waldman, author of Red Hook Road, Bad Mother, and Love and Other Impossible Pursuits

-Although there are many laughs to be found in this marvelous novel, The Rosie Project is a serious reflection on our need for companionship and identity. Don Tillman is as awkward and confusing a narrator as he is lovable and charming.-
--John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

-Charming, funny, and heartwarming, a gem of a book.-
--Marian Keyes, author of The Brightest Star in the Sky and This Charming Man

-I couldn't put this book down. It's one of the most quirky and endearing romances I've ever read. I laughed the whole way through. And now I want to meet Don!-
--Sophie Kinsella, author of the Shopaholic series and Wedding Night

-I wanted to race through The Rosie Project but had to make myself slow down from my usual reading pace, because of the number of sly jokes that I almost missed. A lovely, original, and very funny read.-
--Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You
